Sun 12 Oct 2008




Star player: Nathan Comley

Hasland Community FC U11

Phoenix’s sparkling start to the season continued with the demolition of Hasland on another bright afternoon at Cavendish.

Within the first 2 minutes strong play from midfield star Ashley Bartle lead to him firing home the opener for Phoenix. This lead was short-lived as straight from the kick-off Hasland equalised with a sharp finish following a skilful run by their left winger.

A tough battling encounter then ensued requiring excellent control and passing skills by the Phoenix players typified by Max Littlechilds and Simon Leech both playing full back, ensuring the wide mid-field players were continually fed perfect balls .

Phoenix then won a series of corners putting Hasland under strong pressure, but without success until a breakthrough from Timmy Leech to make it two.

Hasland replied with a number of quick counter attacks but these were comfortably dealt with by the Phoenix central defensive stalwarts Simon Finney & Ollie Rhodes, ably supported as ever by Chris Statham who managed to keep his concentration even though he was a spectator for much of the game.

The third goal came after strong midfield work from George Johnson freed man-of-the-match Nathan Comley to set up Fin Denyer to lash the ball home.

A further goal each Ash Bartle and Tim Leech gave Phoenix a 5-1 half time lead.

In the second half Phoenix re-shuffled the pack, with the introduction of Adam Andrews, but struggled to add to the score for some time until a goal mouth scramble resulted in substitute Daniel Prime firing home from close range.

This was quickly followed by ‘poacher’ Alistair Comley scoring his customary goal.

The game the opened up allowing Phoenix’s free flowing style to set up well worked team goals for Fin Denyer (2) and Ashley Bartle for them both to produce hat-tricks.

Another well worked victory by Phoenix to keep them 2 points clear at the top of the league.
